Home / Banner Alzheimer’s Institute Awareness Linky

I was recently on a call with the Banner Alzheimer’s Institute to learn more about Alzheimer’s Disease. Here are some startling statistics and facts.

  • Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia and is not a normal part of aging
  • Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S.
  • Alzheimer’s: only one of top 10 causes of death that cannot be prevented or cured
  • 5.4 million Americans are affected by Alzheimer’s. Someone is diagnosed every 6.9 seconds
  • 1 in 8 Americans over age 65—nearly 1 in 2 Americans over age 85 currently diag with Alz.
